Totally random recruiting question up for discussion:
What comes first, a recruits offer from a major program or his star rating? If, in fact, the recruit gets scholarship offers before the "gurus" assign him a rating aren't the "gurus" really just the recruiting teams at the individual colleges? I mean, once a younger kid has offers from many major programs isn't it much, much easier for Rivals, Scout and the like to give said kid a favorable ranking? Who are really the experts? The coaching staffs or the recruiting services?
